10 .  ln -s /usr/lib64/ and ln -s /usr/lib64/ and ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

11. cd /opt/Autodesk/Adlm/R1/lib64

13. mkdir /usr/tmp

14. chmod -R 777 /usr/tmp

24. cd/home/user/maya2011/crack’

now open crack file with scite or gedit , then add this line after line number 7

sudo cp ./ /usr/lib/

25. ./crack

26. cd /usr/autodesk/maya2011-x64/bin

then maya

Yes now you are ready to use Maya in Ubuntu 10.04 .

PS . there is new hot fix release from autodesk you can download that from this link

This fix found by friend for Maya 2011 hot fix 2

– before installing I’ve renamed the /var/opt/Autodesk/Adlm to Adlm_orig (this helped me a lot)…
– I’ve re-installed the adlm programs, they’ve created the Adlm directory again
– then I copied the MayaConfig.pit from the Adlm_orig/Maya2011 to Adlm/Maya2011 (also created the Maya2011 directory by hand)
– replaced the with the cracked one
– I run the ./setup script from maya to register the 666-42943644 serial number
– then used ./adlmreg again to unregister and re-register the 666-42943644 serial number (to ensure, I don’t think that it is necessity)
– then run maya without any problem

NB : I am not supporting cracking any software , If you like the software please buy it and support the developers .
